The Quotable Round-Up #56

paper_zpshrjhwlqwHere are some of the quotes from the book “The Ultimate Proof of Creation” by Dr. Jason Lisle. If you enjoy these quotes, please buy the book at your nearest Christian bookstore or on Amazon. Feel free to share this post over your social media. God bless you and enjoy your week!

“Imagine an evolutionist responding to the Christian’s claim that God is the basis for morality by saying, “I say we don’t need God to know right from wrong. You have every right to follow your own standard! Don’t let others tell you what to do. It is your right as an American to think for yourself!” Such a speech might be followed by thunderous applause — even though it is logically absurd and self-refuting. (How could we possibly obey the instruction to not let others tell us what to do?) But by invoking powerful emotions like patriotism and the desire to feel autonomous, the arguer may sway many people with this fallacious speech.”

“Special pleading is the fallacy of applying a double standard. That is, the arguer has applied a standard to his opponent that he does not apply to himself. The duplicity may be subtle and due only to a choice of words: “I’m firm, but you are just stubborn.” Or it may be more obvious. “You can’t tell other people what not to do!” is a clear case of special pleading since the arguer obviously does not apply this standard to himself.”

“Fallacies of ambiguity are arguments that are faulty because they use words or phrases that are unclear or have more than one meaning. There are six common fallacies that are usually listed under this category: equivocation, amphiboly, accent, reification, composition, and division.”

“It should also be pointed out that the relativist cannot possibly live according to his own professed worldview. He may profess a fairy-tale land where truth is subjective and contradictions are acceptable, but he must live in God’s universe and must abide by God’s absolute objective truth if he is to function. Remember, even the most ardent relativist looks both ways before he crosses the street. Moreover, he expects the motorist to abide by the same laws he does — to stop at the stop sign, for example. Just like all of us, the relativist knows in his heart of hearts the biblical God.”

“Worldviews are a bit like kidneys. Everyone has them — you can’t live or function without them. Yet, most people are unaware of their own …until something goes wrong with them. To force the unbeliever to think through his worldview, we want to give him the intellectual equivalent of a kidney stone (for his own benefit!). We remind him of information that he already knows to be true but which he has not carefully considered — information that his worldview cannot process. Like a kidney stone, this procedure may be very painful for the evolutionist; he’s not going to be happy about it. But his erroneous worldview must be exposed for the folly it is if he is ever going to come to the knowledge of the truth.”

“If evolution were true, science and reasoning would not be possible: there would be no basis for logic, nor would there be any basis for uniformity in nature. So if evolutionists were consistent with their worldview, they would not be able to reason or do science. Yet evolutionists are able to reason and to do science. Thus it follows that evolutionists do not consistently rely upon their own worldview. They rely upon creationist presuppositions!”

“Presuppositions are assumed at the outset, before any investigation of evidence; they are pre-supposed and control our interpretation of evidence. We are often not aware of our presuppositions, but they are always present. Just as we are always breathing, even though we are not often conscious of it until we stop and think about it, likewise, our presuppositions are constantly guiding our understanding of our experiences.”

paper_zpshrjhwlqwHere are some of the quotes from the books “This is Our Time” by Trevin Wax and “A Time for Confidence” by Stephen J. Nichols. If you enjoy these quotes, please buy the books at your nearest Christian bookstore or on Amazon. Feel free to share this post over your social media. God bless you and enjoy your week!

“God doesn’t just know everything about you—the Wikipedia version of your life; He knows you truly. God doesn’t just see the image you want the world to see; He sees what you’d never want the world to know. And He loves you anyway.”

“The primary myth the smartphone tells you every day is that you are the center of the universe. If your phone is your world, and if the settings and apps are tailored to you and your interests, then with you at all times is a world that revolves around you. No wonder we like to be on our phones so much! Nothing else has the same effect of putting us at the center of things. Nothing else makes us feel more in control, more Godlike, more knowledgeable, more connected.”

“The gospel doesn’t simply affirm the deepest longings of humanity; it also challenges and reshapes those longings; and in doing so, it exposes the lie. If we do not expose the lies at the heart of the stories in our society, we imply that the Christian view of the world is just one option among many, just one way of finding fulfillment.”

“…God’s grace is sufficient to save, but it is also sufficient to keep us and to meet us at every turn as we live the Christian life.”

“Our challenges are great, but Christ and the gospel are so much greater.”

“Christ is the complete revelation of God, He is the complete fulfillment and apex of all revelation, and He is the consummation of all God’s promises.”

 

“We are called to be faithful in season and out of season. Not all Christians are called to affliction and persecution. Sometimes, living as faithful disciples is difficult in the good times.”

 
“The assault on God’s Word drives us right back to that same Word. These assaults do not weaken our faith in God’s Word. Instead, these assaults force us to put our confidence in it.”
